Between July 24, 2004 and January 9, 2005, I made edits w/o a username, and a few times since then, I may have inadvertently edited w/o logging in. Ooops! July 24 is when I got cable modem, finally, and a static IP. Prior thereto, I was on dialup, and despite my best efforts, have been unable to find a reliable list of my anon edits. Oh well. :-p Tomer TALK 04:32, May 16, 2005 (UTC) Apparently I'm now editing from (talk · contribs).

About me[edit]

Userbox overload[edit]

This page was starting to suffer from userbox overload, so I got rid of all of them and put them here instead. Enjoy.


I first started messing around on wikipedia several years ago, at which time I was unaware that there was a login or contributors' list, or whatnot. Most of my dillydallying has been starting or contributing to articles about Jews and Judaism, as well as a few minor edits in other fields. I first signed up as a real "user" just a couple months ago, so now I've gotta be careful, since now ppl can see what I'm doing... ;-) TShilo12 01:17, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)

OK, and so now, I spent a little time compiling a list of articles I started...have yet to compile a list of articles to which I've contributed extensively. For those wondering how many edits I've made on the English WP, click here. And here's a collection of garbage I've found on WP.


I was born at 8:38 PM Atlantic time, April 15, 1972, in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. That's right, income tax day. Since puertorricans don't pay U.S. Federal Income Tax, however, it's not such an evil day there.

I've lived in the Town of Washington, in Eau Claire County, Wisconsin (just south of Eau Claire, Wisconsin) since I was 7 years old. I hate winter, and blame it on the fact that I'm from Puerto Rico, eventhough my memories of PR are rather scanty, and none of them have anything to do with the climate there.

I went to Cleghorn Elementary School in Cleghorn, Wisconsin, and then to South Junior High School in Eau Claire, although from mid-October until early January of fifth grade (grade 5 for the Canucks out there), I went to Downsville Elementary School in Downsville, Wisconsin, and I went to Pepin High School in Pepin, Wisconsin for the first semester of 9th grade. (Incidentally, when I was going to Pepin HS, I was living near Lund, Wisconsin, about 2 miles from the girlhood home of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Every day on the way to school, I passed the park containing her real-life house described in Little House in the Big Woods. [1] I graduated June 6, 1990 from Eau Claire's Memorial High School. Unlike most people, apparently, I absolutely do not think High School was the best time of my life. One cool thing about High School tho, was the fact that the principal's office left us alone for the most part when we took over the lobby by the main auditorium every morning before school (sometimes as many as 40 of us), playing hackey sack...usually with koosh balls, in those days...

I went to UWEC off and on thereafter, finally getting a B.S. in Physics on May 22, 1998, after (sometimes serious) flirtations with Sociology, Geology and Cultural geography: Linguistics. I didn't go to commencement, as I had to work that day, at ShopKo's service desk, and didn't really regard my finally having graduated as much of an accomplishment (my GPA was only 2.44).

In July of 1999, I became manager of the shoe department at ShopKo #24 in Eau Claire, which meant, at that time, that I became an employee of J. Baker, Inc., a company that should rot in hell for the way they screwed over their employees and the chains that contracted with them. Oh wait. That's right, they went bankrupt. I guess annihilation is about the same thing as hell, except without the torment. Oh well. As that stupid country song says, "two outta three ain't bad"...

Payless Shoes took over JBI's ShopKo account in June of 2000, which meant I was either out of a job, (unless I was willing to accept the equivalent of anal rape from Payless, a store from which I will never buy a pair of shoes or even a pair of shoelaces as long as I live or) unless I went back to my service desk job at ShopKo. I was out of a job. Happily, I already had lined up a position at Honeywell, in the Advanced Circuits unit of their Electronic Materials division. Unfortunately, my brother, through whom I got the job, had made some enemies among the bigwigs, and so I was stuck in an unadvanceable position. When a layoff was offered in November of 2002, I took it happily. Greedily, you might say.

I returned to UWEC in January of 2003 and completed a second degree, this time in Computer Science.

While working on my CS degree, and then for a year afterwards, I worked as the regulatory coördinator and biolab tech for a local veterinary pharmaceutical laboratory. Since June of 2007, I've been working as a data tech for IDEXX Computer Systems, a division of IDEXX Laboratories.

Other stuff about me[edit]

I have a mom and a dad.

I have 2 sisters and a brother, some cousins, nephews, grandparents, nieces, and various other relatives.

I'm a proud Jew.

I'm single and love it, but would also love to not be. I'm just starting a relationship with a great girl who, if things work out alright, will be my wife come Sept. 2006. Well wishing is welcome, but gifts and financial contributions will be appreciated even more.

One of my fun little projects in high schools (besides inventing my own language) , was to invent a new orthography for English.

For the dialectologists, the way I speak English, "Atlantis" sounds like /ɛʔ·'læn nis/, "Toronto" sounds like /tɹ̩·'a no/ or /'tɹa·no/, and while "dentist" is usually /'dɛ·nɪst̚/, "dentists" is /'dɛ·nɪs:/ (not to be confused with "Dennis", which is /'dɛ·nɪs/).

My Interests[edit]


Basically, I like anything except most of what comes out of the Rap and Country world. I hate any and everything, however, bearing the label Jazz.



My closest friendships in the world are with Jordan, Munch and a few other great guys, more recently, Coot, Shneb, Lester and Milas, none of whom have any particular overriding interest in Wikimania.


  • Mili Avital (the hottest actress ever)
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger (and not only because I can spell his name w/o looking it up)
  • Nicolas Cage I hate. He's a crappy actor and should go work in a gas station. I take that back. He probably can't even pump gas properly.


I honestly believe that people who believe that "communism works, it just hasn't been tried by the right people" are delusional.
